|Inclusive Heathenry 101:|
The sagas and stories of the Vikings, as well as the occult use of the Runes have long fascinated pagans.
Recently, shows such as Vikings,
The Lost Kingdom, not to mention the Marvel Universe movies, have brought a new surge of interest in Norse philosophy and culture..
People are thirsty to learn more about the pre-christian religious practices of the peoples of Scandinavia, Russia, Europe and Iceland.
Come learn about the broad spectrum of Heathen belief and practice, peoples and sub-cultures of the modern reconstructed faith known as Heathenry, aka Asatru!
If you’re asking “So, what’s inclusive Heathenry, then?”, it’s a generational initiative toward a more open, welcoming and anti-racist approach to our modern reconstucted faith. Heathenry is a newer sect than, say, other denominations of Paganism, with beginnings in the 1970s. Heathenry is in the 4th generation of living Neopagan practice. We have come to a point where we must reconcile our modern understanding with the earlier, less accepting attitudes of some early Heathen founders. A significant proportion of them were biased particularly against Black, Indigenous and people of color, as well as womxn, and LGBTQIIA+ people. These outdated attitudes must be faced and rooted out, before we can become more like the Heathens of yore, that so many seek to emulate.
In addition to learning more about the basic practices and ritual structure, we will also discuss some tips on how to identify some of these darker paths who have continued to embrace these baneful attitudes and actions, specifically those rooted in white supremacy, racial bigotry, misogyny and hatred.
Oftentimes, the “tells” that indicate such philosophies can be easily identified with a bit of education.
Likewise, We’ll also discuss ways to evaluate a Heathen group in order to determine whether a group or kindred is inclusive.
